CAA award time

One averaged 28 points and led her team to a pair of comeback victories, while the other went off for 33 points in a tournament final. So we suspect the CAA needed about 30 seconds before deciding on JMU's Dawn Evans and VCU's D'Andra Moss at Co-Players of the Week.

It would have been 15 seconds except the league had to at least consider Delaware face-of-the-franchise Elena Delle Donne, who averaged 27 points, 8.5 rebounds and 3 assists in two contests. The key difference: Despite Delle Donne's heroics, the Blue Hens lost at Princeton Saturday. Evans and Moss would not let their teams lose.

Evans is amassing quite a collection of these things; she won/shared it five times last year. As for Delle Donne, she claimed her first (but clearly not her last) CAA Rookie of the Week honor.
